The Future of the Abrasive Industry at the Center of #FEPA Upcoming Annual Conference

Paris, France (Thursday, May 3rd, 2018) – FEPA, the Federation of European Producers of Abrasives, is pleased to announce that its Annual Conference will be held from June 13th-15th, 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal. This year’s FEPA’s flagship event marks a turning point in the Federation as it will add strategic business forums to technical commission meetings.

A strategic business forum could gather up to 70 attendees and take various formats such as a roundtable discussion, a panel discussion, or even the participation of a keynote speaker. In smaller format, topics will be addressed to a targeted audience such as a specific subset of FEPA membership, and will be conducted as think-tanks where member companies will be asked to come prepared to participate in the discussion.
